Cooling efficiency is said to be increased 300% because the latent heat of vaporization of water is much greater than the heat capacity of liquid water.
the boundary conditions depend on the evaporation speed of water at the boundary, the latent heat of vaporization and the vapor pressure of water at the ambient temperature in the vicinity of the sample, etc.
When that happens, the liquid picks up the latent heat of vaporization.
